If the cast photo for Lifetime’s Full House movie didn’t give you chills, these new images from the unauthorized TV movie – the very first! – just may.
The Unauthorized Full House Story will center on the rise of the cast of one of America’s most beloved family sitcoms and the pressures they faced in balancing their television personas with their real lives, according to the official synopsis.
Now, this isn’t to be confused with Netflix’s 2016 revival Fuller House, which will see the return of the main cast, including Bob Saget, John Stamos, Jodie Sweetin and Candace Cameron Bure – but won’t include the Olsen twins.
ETonline exclusively premieres two images from Lifetime’s version and we’re thinking fans may have some thoughts.
In the first exclusive image, actor Justin Gaston (Miley Cyrus’ ex) channels John Stamos' Jesse Katsopolis as he dons the classic red T-shirt, leather vest and faded jeans combo, while actress Dakota Guppy, who plays a young Jodie Sweetin, peers over his shoulder.
We couldn’t help but notice just how strikingly similar Guppy looks to Sweetin! And is he using a smartphone somehow?
In the second exclusive photo, actor Garrett Brawith does his best to get into character as young Bob Saget/Danny Tanner, as he and Gaston look off-camera.
Other actors starring in The Unauthorized Full House Story are Justin Mader as Dave Coulier and Stephanie Bennett as Lori Loughlin.
The Unauthorized Full House Story premieres Aug. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
